DL380 6i Array Controller issue

We got a new DL380 G4 Server with 6 300 GB hard drives connected to internal 6i Array Controller.

When booted the server with Smartstart 7.4 its wasn't recognising the controller card & I was not able to configure the array to build the server any further.

The Bios Version was 2005.10.10 & 6i Array Controller firmware version was 2.58 which were one version less the latest released version.

Re: DL380 6i Array Controller issue

Thanks to HP Technical Helpdesk person, he asked me to upgrade the Bios on the server to 2006.04.26 & then boot the machine with Smartstart 7.4, this time it was much faster & also recognised the controller.

Right now the server is running perfectly alright.

Thanks to HP technical Support.
